Miami Hang Gliding - The Florida Ridge Air Sports Park: $89 for a Tandem Discovery-Flight Hang-Gliding Package from Miami Hang Gliding ($179 Value)

The need to feel the wind in your hair is most easily fulfilled by riding in a convertible, though it can also be fulfilled by engaging Mother Nature in a screaming match or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Welcome a blast of fresh air with this Groupon.

$89 for Tandem Hang-Gliding Flight Package ($179 Total Value)

  • Tandem Discovery flight (a $149 value)
  • Admission to the air-sports park (a $15 value)
  • 30-day membership to US Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (a $10 value)
  • Parking (a $5 value on first visit)<p>

Flights are offered Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from sunrise to sunset. A 30-minute video and ground-school session prep budding aerialists for a hands-on lesson in hang-gliding in which an instructor and trainee coast on the wind at heights of more than 1,500 feet—which is higher than the Empire State Building. While midflight, the instructor hands over the hang-glider’s controls to the pupil, which allows the student to test out steering skills as the instructor catches up on yesterday’s crossword puzzle. Customers may apply the value of their Groupon toward an upgrade to a different flight if desired.

Hang Gliding

Located on 50 acres of land in Clewiston, The Florida Ridge Air Sports Park gives guests unlimited opportunities to indulge in airborne activities. Winds from the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Coast converge to create favorable soaring conditions for hang-gliding, paragliding, and controlled umbrella flights. The park also offers pilot-training programs and equipment rentals for expert windsurfers.

Great staff really friendly and the pilot was cool and really helped with flying the glider. Plus the views were amazing definitely going back.

You have to do the mile high package and I suggest the photos and videos package as well. It's about 30 minutes in the air and the view is amazing. The cost is expensive $242.00 more added to the group on price; nevertheless, it's a memory you won't forget.
